Players who previously had the misfortune of playing basketball on the same court as CNN anchor Chris Cuomo are now speaking out about their experiences with Cuomo. And what they’re saying appears to be bad news for the notoriously anti-Trump anchor.
As The New York Post reports:
Chris Cuomo — who had a verbal altercation with what he described as a “jackass, loser, fat-tire biker” last week — brought his famous temper to the basketball courts at New York’s most high-end gym years ago.
A source, who used to play hoops with the CNN anchor at the Reebok Club (now Equinox) at 67th Street and Columbus, tells Page Six Cuomo was known by fellow players to be a “tool,” “jerk,” “cry baby” and an “a - - hole.”
The source told us, “He is a pretty good player, and athletic. So it was ridiculous what a baby he was. You don’t usually see that behavior from really good players. His go-to reaction was some variation of ‘Do you want to fight?’ for even minor basketball plays.”
Adding, “I would have gladly fought him … But if you swung at someone at the club, you were automatically kicked out.”
Over the summer Cuomo famously was caught on camera after flying into a rage when he was confronted by a heckler on the street.
